Graph Drawing Creative Topics

We have two creative topics that are judged independently:

  • Hrafnkels Saga: This graph models the genealogy and interactions in the Icelandic Saga.
  • K-pop: This graph models various types of relationships between Korean artists, bands, and management and recording companies.

Participants may submit drawings of both graphs (or only one graph).

Hrafnkels Saga





For the creative topics, you are completely free to use any drawing style you wish. Your submissions will be judged both on aesthetic value and on the clarity of information displayed.


Submissions will be handled through EasyChair at the web site


and must be received by September 2020 (exact date TBA). The submission must be a pdf version of your visualization, suitable for printing on a large A0 poster. Your submission should also include the following information, either added to the pdf file, or in the abstract:

  • A brief description on how the graph and layout were produced.
  • (Optional) A link to a visualization illustrating the graph in a format of your choosing (e.g., an interactive tool).
  • (Optional) A link to a web-friendly image of your visualization, max resolution 1000 by 1000 pixels. If not provided, we will use a picture of the submitted poster for the website.
  • If your drawing requires special printing because of size, resolution, or color constraints, you are encouraged to submit via hard-copy to the address below. In this case, please contact us in advance and make sure that your submission is received no later than September 15. Please still submit the remaining items via EasyChair.
